  1. allow dialing from contacts and events

    I would like to be able to dial contacts from Outlook for android. Right now, i only see the contact's email.

    Also, need to be able to dial from calendar events. for example, I often use the location field in the event for a phone number when the event is a phone call or conference call.

  2. Birthday field in Android contacts

    it is inconceivable to accept that such an expensive software has not provided birthday and anniversary fields in the contacts. I definitely expected much more than that.

  3. Include a contacts list

    A contacts list/management should be an integral part of the app

  4. Send a contact from the People Pages

  5. contact search function

    I suggest that the Outlook contacts be available for search in the phone contacts function or Android contact function. if I allow my Outlook contacts in my Gmail contacts to be shown on my phone, I should be able to see my contacts from Outlook and Gmail to select the contact I want to call. my Enterprise contact should be available to be seen on my phone without me having to access the Outlook app.

  6. sync contact folder and not just suggested contacts

    The app only appears to synchronize suggested contacts, when I search for a known contact that I rarely converse with, I cannot find it in the app but can find it in my contacts folder in Desktop Outlook.

  8. get rid of birthday reminders.

    it is extremely annoying to get reminders for birthdays from people I haven't spoken to in over 8 years. I have no idea how to delete them. generally if it's a person I care about I remember their birthday.

  9. Be able to delete old email addresses. I have old email addresses that I no longer need or the recipient has changed their email address

    I have friends who have changed job's & email addresses from Yahoo to Gmail or to Outlook. Or people I used to work with, & no longet do. I can add their new email to my email but I can't get rid of their old email address. Trying to remember which is the correct address to even send an email to them? Is difficult.

  10. Add people icon that could replace android contacts

    so Android used to sync better with contacts appointments but Google kindly remove that service. thanks Google. if Microsoft could provide a people icon then that would replace the one down the bottom that I use to make phone calls and I wouldn't have to sync the contacts because I'd be going directly to where all my contacts stored. also I like Microsoft people better because you can type in beside the phone number the name of the person ie big company, phone number one, mike. phone number two, bob etc

  13. Include option to separate Outlook contacts from device contacts

    Instead of listing all contacts from both the device and from email accounts as device and Outlook contacts, there should be an option to show only Outlook contacts in Outlook and keep them separate from the device contacts. It's annoying to see random contacts listed in Outlook, and makes finding important contacts easier. As stated, this should be optional, so people can still sync their contacts to their device.
